An Australian civil servant on Thursday won compensation after she was injured while having sex on a work trip.
The HR worker needed hospital treatment after a glass light fitting fell and hit her in the face while she was romping with a male friend in a motel room.
She claimed that the sex was "during the course of her employment" because the room was provided by the government agency she was employed by and as such they were responsible.
And yesterday Judge John Nicholas, sitting in Australia's Federal Court, agreed – setting aside an original tribunal decision not to award compensation to the woman, from Canberra.
Giving his ruling, he said: "If the applicant had been injured while playing a game of cards in her motel room, she would be entitled to compensation."
The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, will also have her costs paid.
This is absurdity of the highest level.....haba.....she don collect pay...
